Thursday Isaia added an offer from Georgia Tech and Friday Ole Miss also offered. “It’s exciting to me how my recruitment is going.” Jacob now has 15 plus offers.
Last February, Jacob visited Tech with his family prior to receiving the offer. “Their academics is known throughout the country and we wanted to see the campus and meet the coaching staff. It was a great trip and I think the trip really helped me get the offer from Georgia Tech.”
In addition to the academics at Tech, Isaia also likes the offense they run. “We run a similar offense and I’m good at it.” Jacob is being recruited by Coach “Buzz” Preston. “He told me that the staff will have a difficult time in deciding where to put me on the offensive line.” Jacob plays left tackle for Bishop Gorman. Jacob said it wouldn’t surprise him to end up at tackle because of his athleticism. “I’m 6’ 3”-275 and still growing. I could also move inside.”
The success of their first visit to Tech has Jacob and his family wanting to make a return visit. “My family wants to go back again and I do too.” Jacob is currently focusing on schools in the East. Distance from home will not be a factor in his recruitment.
Saturday Jacob and his family attended the Michigan State spring game. In April, he plans to visit Minnesota, Cal, and Colorado. Jacob will then get ready to start his spring practices on April 24. “It gets quite hot out here so we start a little earlier than most schools.”
Jacob plans to wait until after his senior season before he makes his college choice. “I want to make sure I have everything I need to know and then make my decision pretty close to signing day.” Jacob will be looking for a quality education. Academics is a priority in his family. “I also want a school that has good chemistry on the team and a coaching staff that makes graduating a priority.”
